4 Benefits of Tribulus terrestris for Women

Yellow Flower of Tribulus Terrestris

Tribulus terrestris is a flowering plant that has long been a part of herbal medicine due to its reputation as a wellness booster. A lot of attention has centered around the benefits of tribulus terrestris for male sexual health; but not many know that Tribulus terrestris offers a lot to women as well. Studies show that Tribulus may positively influence mood, sexual health, and the urinary tract.

1. Boosts Libido

Tribulus has a long history of supporting sexual function in both men and women. One study found that Tribulus improved sexual desire in 49 out of 50 female participants. [1] Another recent study found that women who took Tribulus experienced greater sexual desire, arousal, and satisfaction compared to those who took placebo. [2] Tribulus may also stimulate androgen receptors in the brain, an action that can help the body respond positively to circulating hormones.

2. Energy Enhancer

Women are instrumental in society. The weaker sex? No way. Not only are some women mothers, wives, full-time workers, and homemakers, they are also humans. Every human is bound to experience fatigue at some point or another, both mentally and physically. Some research suggests that Tribulus may provide a greater sense of energy by increasing the amount of oxygen available to cells. While this won’t replace a good night’s rest, it may provide an endurance boost when women need it the most. [3] [4]

3. Mood Support

Mood swings and other mood disorders can be a real bummer and many people have a resistance, rightfully, to prescription drugs. Like kava and mulungu bark, Tribulus is an herb that may positively affect mood, stress, and anxiety. [5] This can be helpful for women who juggle multiple responsibilities or combat issues associated with PMS.

4. Urinary Tract Protection

As a diuretic, Tribulus may encourage urine flow, which helps with cleansing the kidneys, bladder, liver, and urethra. The removal of wastes and the cleansing action attributed to increased urine output and kidney support. Additionally, the release of fluid may encourage the elimination of toxins, something that can have a dramatic impact on mood and energy. [6]

    I just finished a 4 week cycle and WOW!!! Im 35 Yrs old and had slowly noticed a decrease in energy and libido. I am very much into weight lifting and began an interest because of the possible strength enhancing. I added tribbulus to my daily supplements and after 4days I noticed an increase in strength 👍 so excited!!!! I especially felt strong sexual desires which was encouraging for my husband.I definitely needed this. I cycled off due to a minor surgical procedure that was gonna have me resting for a week. I am excited to get back on. It’s been great for my energy and sexual desire. I feel strong , vibrant and energetic. Thank you for the information on tribbulus for woman. It may not or may not work for everyone but it worked for me 😁😁😁😁
